Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows if we need any more documents for us to get our marriage license in Las Vegas.if my fiance has her fiance visa and her birth certificate.She wont have her SSN.Below is what i copied from a site on Vegas weddings.

I have seen some members here have married there and it looks like fun.

+ Both parties must appear at the Marriage License Bureau, located at 201 Clark Street.

+ You will need: a photo ID, proof of age, and must know your Social Security Number

Thank you,

Hi Scott,

I hear there is a wedding chapel on the strip where you can get married by an ordained Elvis impersonator :jest:

Document requirements for issuing a marriage license are different from state to state and from even from county to county.

I pulled this directly of the website for the Las Vegas Marriage Bureau

"General License Information

Marriage License Requirements: Requirements for U.S. citizens and non U.S. citizens are the same.

It is suggested that non U.S. citizens check with your local officials for special documents that may be needed to ensure that your marriage will be recognized in your country.

Applicants must be a Male and a Female, at least 18 years of age, and not nearer of kin than second cousins or cousins of half blood, and not having a husband or wife living.

Applicants may be required to prove their age. Those not having acceptable identification to prove age may be refused a marriage license. (Faxed copies, damaged identification, privately issued I.D., check cashing cards or photocopies of identification are unacceptable.)

Social Security Numbers are required on the Affidavit of Application for a Marriage License. Please know your Social Security Number. Those without knowledge of their Social Security Number may be refused a marriage license. It is recognized that non U.S. citizens will not have a Social Security Number.

NOTE: AS OF JANUARY 1, 2003, THE FEE IS $55.00

Note: You can now complete your marriage license application online. To do so, click here. "




Good luck to u both. ~Asha

We have revised our plans to marry in Vegas.. most of my family couldn't come because of the trip.. So We'll marry where I live in a small Banquet room.. everything simple but sweet.. But now I need to find out if I need a SSN in Idaho.. Dang..better start studying up on that..

Oh but we'll honeymoon in Vegas :)

I WISH we could elope... our 'small wedding' plans are getting complicated. Bah.


LOL! EXACTLY! That is precisely one of the benefits in my mind for proposing in Vegas!
